Misconduct

Red Wings - Coyotes Pregame Notes

Henrik Zetterberg returns to the Red Wings lineup tonight as Detroit hosts the Phoenix Coyotes. He missed three games after signing a 12-year contract extension last week.

Tomas Holmstrom remains out of the lineup but Zetterberg's return bumps Ville Leino to the pressbox as the Wings want to get another look at Darren Helm. Leino is expected to play again on Saturday afternoon.

Chris Osgood gets his second start in a row for the Wings.

Gametime is 7:30 with TV coverage on FSN Plus.

Not that Zetterberg does not deserve the votes, but that whole McDonald's player of the game thing is a HUGE joke. I mean, the game hasn't started yet, and you're not Nostradamus >:c STOP VOTING. Does this bother anyone else besides me? Because every game it just makes me angrier.

I am excited for Helm to be playing, because he is a favourite of my favourite players. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

And besides the whole factor of winning for the Wings, I would also like to see them win so I can see Gretzky's angry expressions, I still get a kick out of them <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Hossa puts the wings in front.

Joanovski?...I think that's how it's spelled! ties it up. On a silly penalty that shouldn't have been turned into a powerplay for the Coyotes in the first place.

Hossa again. That was an odd goal. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Fedoruk scores for the Coyotes.

Zetterberg earns his welcome by scoring <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" /> Sweet.

3-2 Wings.

Datskuk to Zetterberg.......goal.

Turns out my gym doesn't get FSN Plus. I'm gonna have to rethink what I'm paying them so much for.

Got back in time to see the really nice pass from Datsyuk to Zata for the goal. Great to see them clicking.

Agreed with Mick, should have been a call on Cheli.

Aparently Samuelsson scored. Just missed it.
